Facts about J.D.

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
J.D. is one of our biggest, most handsome male cats that is available for adoption at our facility. He is 6-7 years old, and was turned into our shelter by his owner who was unable to keep him because she had to move.

J.D. loves to be around the staff and volunteers, and enjoys roaming around the shelter. He is a bully to the other cats, and does not like the dogs around much either. He has been tolerant of one other cat and a mellow office dog, but would prefer a home that will be all his own. He is declawed, and he has always been an indoor cat. He has been around our junior volunteers, and is comfortable around kids 5 years and older.

J.D. does have special medical needs as he is slightly Diabetic and requires a small injection of insulin twice a day. We can put you in touch with the Veterinarian who has diagnosed and treated J.D. before. He is currently doing very well, and will be visiting the Vet again soon to test his bloodwork levels.

If you are interested in J.D., please contact us or stop by and ask to meet him in person. He is a wonderful, big lap cat that really deserves a good home where he will have all of his needs taken care of and lots of love.

An approved adoption application is required to adopt an animal from our Humane Society. Our application form is available on our main website or by requesting a copy be mailed. We accept completed applications via email, postal mail or in person at our office. Visit our website for more adoption information and policies. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

About Tri-Lakes Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

"We speak for those who cannot" has been our shelter's motto since 1973. Since 1942 our members and staff have rescued homeless and unwanted pets, and placed them into new and loving homes.
In 1998, our board of directors voted to become a "no-kill" facility. "No-kill" means we do not euthanize healthy & adoptable animals to make room for new arrivals. In 2001, we moved to our new facility at 255 George Lapan Hwy in Saranac Lake, NY. Since our big move, we have rescued and adopted out over 3000 animals and reunited over 1000 pets with their owners.

We are very involved in our local community, and we have a Humane Education program and we travel to local schools to educate children on proper animal care, the importance of spaying and neutering, and how to be kind to animals.
Our Spay/Neuter Assistance Program provides financial aid to low income pet owners who need help affording the cost of the surgery at local Veterinary Hospitals and Clinics.
We also have a Trap-Neuter-Return program to help local community feral cats.

The Tri-Lakes Humane Society employs an Animal/Dog Control Officer, and contracts with local towns and villages. Our Dog Control Officer is in charge of enforcing the local Dog Control ordinances. From time to time, we also become involved in animal cruelty cases and assist local law enforcement with their investigations.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Applications must be submitted and approved prior to adoption of any animal. You can view our Adoption Policies and application form on our website:

Our Adoption Fee for dogs/puppies and cats/kittens is $77, which covers the spay/neuter cost, microchipping and registration, as well as all vaccinations, flea treatment, and wormings.
The Adoption Fees vary if the pet was already spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to arriving at our shelter.
We also have a Seniors for Seniors adoption program. If a person over 60 years of age opts to adopt a pet over the age of 7, all adoption fees are waived.
